CineCert’s Anini is a highly reliable and flexible HTTP accessible task management solution for centralized IMF/DCP mastering and content preparation. Post-production and mastering users can deploy Anini to automate mastering processes and cloud-based service providers can offer Anini-based DCP and IMF mastering capabilities to their customers.

Service-Oriented Architecture frameworks are setting new standards for efficiency, and Anini allows CineCert’s customers to extend that efficiency into DCP and IMF mastering and packaging operations.  Anini’s deep customization capability provides the flexibility necessary to quickly address specific workflow needs to maintain the competitive advantage.


Compress DPX or TIFF files to JPEG2000 frames with color space conversion, cropping and padding.

Supports accelerated image processing with AWS Lambda.


Wrap JPEG 2000 pictures, PCM sound, and SMPTE ST 428-7 or TI CineCanvas™ timed text into the MXF file format, in either Interop or SMPTE formats.


Anini incorporates extensive background task management to simplify job scheduling and make the most of available computing resources.


Anini offers a GUI that uses the REST API to present a graphical view of Anini’s current status and provide task control options such as run/stop and priority elevation.

The interface is available from Anini’s HTTP server, allowing convenient monitoring from any browser-equipped client.


Anini’s Python environment allows customers to define virtually any process, using features from the vast global library of free and commercial Python extensions and customers’ proprietary extensions.


Remote processes can control and monitor Anini tasks and system resources via the built-in HTTP server and REST API.

Anini commands use JSON or XML document types to allow convenient interface with popular control environments.

Anini tasks can also be configured to perform callback actions upon completion or failure, allowing controllers to be notified of system events without polling.

System Requirements

Anini is available as a native Linux application (e.g. Ubuntu, Debian). Contact for more info.
